  1. The only suggestion I can give you is wait for Bulldozer CPUs to come out since it most likely will drop the prices of AMD's older CPU.
  2. Regarding your memory choice, why are you choosing 3 dimms? They'll end up running in single channel mode. Get a kit of 4 dimms so they can run in dual channel mode.

    Regarding the power supply, I would go with a better brand. Kingwin is not known for quality power supplies. Go for a corsair 850 w.
